Juventus won the Derby d’Italia 1-0 against a stubborn Inter side to maintain their unbeaten start to the Serie A season, though Napoli continue to keep up the chase in second spot with an easy win over Frosinone.
A crazy match in Sardinia saw Cagliari score two goals in the stoppage time to earn a draw with Roma, whilst Sampdoria bagged a late equaliser against Lazio, and Fiorentina got two in the final two minutes to grab a 3-3 draw with Sassuolo.
There was a big win for Empoli at the bottom of the table, their third in four matches since changing coach, and Atalanta got three points at Udinese thanks to a Duvan Zapata hat-trick.
